[QUOTE=Deerminator;37310]{Trans-Siberian Orchestra vidoes were here}[/QUOTE]

The wife and I have always liked TSO and had wanted to see them live for a long time, so I took the whole family to their performance at the Americans Airline Center in downtown Dallas a couple of years ago. Never again. The performance was as good as we expected, but the volume level blew our eardrums out like no other musical act I've ever attended before (and I grew up going to heavy rock concerts a lot). Between that and the excessive use of strobed lighting effects it was a pretty unpleasant exercise in sensory overload.

Ha! That's classic.

The 'rents wore a hole in that album...

Also, possibly the most acceptable [I]Ave[/I] on youtube, LOL

I almost put one up last night, but nearly all are more about the singer/production than the music, which is a Bozo AND a Santa no-no.

One of these days someone will put the best performance of [I]Ave Maria[/I] together with the best video.

:tu:

Two personal favorites:






40.) DParker - 12/26/2015
What always impressed me about that particular rendition of hers (Nana Mouskouri has done several recordings of Schubert's [i]Ave Maria[/i]) is that she makes German..which is not the world's most melodic tongue...sound like a divinely-inspired language.
41.) Swamp Fox - 12/26/2015
Did you mean that the above version, in Latin, makes the German version sound divine? LOL

I went looking for a German version I could like compared to Mouskouri's German version (which I agree with you about--it is excellent), and I found this, plus I like the video. I guess it's my inner Teuton coming through. Barbara Bonney, I think.:



42.) DParker - 12/26/2015
Damn...you're right....that [i]is[/i] the Latin version. I have the German one you posted on my iPod, and the intro sounded the same to me. That'll teach me to listen for more than a few seconds before thinking I've found what I'm looking for. Then again..maybe it won't.
43.) Swamp Fox - 12/26/2015
I think it's sometimes hard to pick up what language a piece like [I]Ave Maria [/I] is in, especially with a singer like Mouskouris because there's so much going on with the voice. It's worst with Latin, Italian, etc.

If you're ever in need of another excellent [I]Ave[/I] auf Deutsch, look up Helene Fischer. I think I'll save her version (killer) for next Christmas, but my Magic 8 Ball says "Chances are high" that I'll be playing some of her pop stuff in the Friday Videos thread pretty soon, LOL. :wink


"Don't make me play polka!" :grin:

It's especially difficult for me when I get cocky and don't listen past the intro to actually hear her singing. :-)

Illegitimi non carborundum.
